Explore Suffolk on foot during walking festival

This year’s Suffolk Walking Festival is taking place from May 9 to 31, introducing residents and visitors to the county’s countryside and towns with a series of eclectic walks.

With a packed programme of more than 90 guided walks the festival, organised by Suffolk’s local authorities, is set to be the biggest yet.

Taking in market towns, medieval villages, rolling fields and coastal paths, all the walks are led by knowledgeable guides and some include entry to local landmarks and refreshments.

Lesley Dolphin, from BBC Radio Suffolk, is a new patron of the festival. She said: “We spend so much time driving in our cars to get from A to B and this is a wonderful chance to slow the pace a little and to see, hear and smell some of the delights of Suffolk.”

The programme includes themed walks such as Stektch Book Strolls with a local artist in Brandon Country Park, the Food Glorious Food hike through Thetford Forest, and the Horseshoe Trail to learn more about Newmarket’s horse-racing history.
